WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME NEAR FRIDAY HARBOR ON SAN JUAN ISLAND

This vacation home on San Juan Island perches right over the sea. Amazing views of the water set the stage for a classic Island vacation - in fact there's so much blue water right out front of the windows that you sometimes feel like you're on a boat! To enhance that sensation, the decor has a distinctive nautical theme!

Just imagine the serenity of sitting on the spacious deck looking over deep blue waters, taking in the wide open views of neighboring islands and passing boats. The same elemental view is also framed in the vaulted windows of the living room when you come indoors.

The styling is casual, warmed by rich colors in every room, a blend of European chalet and northwestern cabin that make for a very cozy environment. The chalet has a three level floor plan. From the parking level, you come down two flights of stairs to enter the home on the mid-level. The living/dining areas face the water. The living room has a new TV and a pellet stove for extra warmth. The kitchen is very well provided and guest cooks will love the commercial-style propane range. There's also a little bistro table at one end of the kitchen that is a wonderful spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine before dinner. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are located on this main level as well.

The upper loft functions as the master bedroom because it has a sitting area, desk, and private bath. It's open to the living room so that the water view can be enjoyed through the windows that extend up two stories in the living room. The lower level has been recently updated with new paint and a larger second TV and sofa in this area. In addition, this level of the home offers a third bathroom with shower, laundry room, and an entry onto a lower deck as well.

Washington Way Chalet is only a five minute drive from Friday Harbor and the ferry landing, where you'll find the community theaters, art galleries, lots of restaurants, grocery stores, and fun shopping!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations, location for beautiful scenery, and overall more than satisfied with the entire experience. We had not been to the San Juan Island before and when we return (which we plan that it will be soon) we will again rent this particular property. Property management arranging for the rental was very helpful and gave us information regarding ferry schedules, etc., that we wouldn't have known otherwise. We were so pleased with everything and wished our time could have been extended. Original review on mgt. co. website, Vacation Doorways.

Reviewer Comments:

The view was spectacular and made the stay in this house worth while! There was a mildew smell in washing machine that permeated throughout basement. We didn't use the it for that reason. This was concerning as well as smell of prior tenants that may have cooked crab as we detected that in the kitchen.

Reviewer Comments:

I was worried about the size for a group of 6, but Washington Way easily accommodated all of us - with 3 floors of living space, we never felt crowded. The pictures don't do the views justice; they are AMAZING! We saw both sunrises AND sunsets over the ocean, and felt like we were the only people around for miles! My only note of caution is that the couch in the basement does not pull out and thus only sleeps 1, which seems like a big miss in an otherwise fantastic rental. It would be the ideal living level for a couple, complete with its own bathroom and balcony, if it had a bed. Still, that's a minor complaint and it was well-suited for my niece who adopted it as "her apartment" during our stay. :) Everything was clean, lots of supplies to get us started, and I just can't say enough about those VIEWS! I would gladly return to Washington Way and recommend it to family and friends.

Had a great time here. What a view to wake up to each morning. Enjoyed sitting out on the patio each morning with our morning coffee and looking over the straits and just soaking in the serenity and the beauty.

Reviewer Comments:

Fabulous view with floor to ceiling window looking across to deer Harbor on orcas Island. Large deck to enjoy the view from. Great location about five minutes out of Friday Harbor. Lots of Nic nac nautical theme. Large kitchen where three people can easily work from. Showers all had extremely low pressure requiring a long time to complete shower. Central heating system was very loud. Staff was very responsive to maintenance issues. We loved our stay and would stay again for the view alone.
